The Equispace blog has published its annual Degrees of Separation post, looking at the Derby contenders one by one:
The AMC Gremlin Division: My dad bought my mom an American Motors Corporation (AMC) Gremlin back in 1975 (or thereabouts) and it was a thing of beauty. Bright red, sleek gold stripes, the works.

Twice the Appeal: It's just not going to happen. It's just not going to happen. It's just not going to happen. I feel like Bart Simpson at the blackboard. Could have easily placed in the Human Fund division due to the money this horse will take due to Borel being in the irons.
Watch Me Go: Tampa Derby winner reminds me of Hold Me Back, not sure why, maybe the three syllable name and that he won the Tampa Bay Derby.
